Forum: GratefulDead Subject: a cadre of musicians & artists -- old & in the way

Nicholas Meriwether - new archivist for Grateful Dead Archive

What's a good starting place to jump in from? Who knows? I think a broad context should be used. How do you explore this incredible universe of musical history? All of it coexists with other music and artforms, not to mention social activism. The Grateful Dead crossed all these boundaries, pushed many of them, and much, much more.

How stupid is this -- "Who is Sam Bush?" A brother posted about an experience he had with a mandolin player who didn't know who Sam Bush was. I hope Mr. Meriwether searches the Forums and The Archive here for valuable archival materials. Numerous groups, organizations, and individuals have contributed. Any thoughts? Here's my 2 cents, since I witnessed some of this stuff.

Sam comes from a cadre of musicians and artists from the same time and place in important musical history. They played together in numerous bands and groupings. Many of these artists, Sam Bush, and the Newgrass Revival were developing exciting and new evolving musical forms. They were pushing their genre's boundaries -- Bluegrass music -- in several different directions at once. It was called Newgrass music. As they were doing this, they would showcase their risk-tasking musical styles, improvisational skills playing their instruments, some very lovely and soulful singing, impressive arrangements, and energy-filled performances. Audiences everywhere were thrilled to see exciting new things for the first time ever. This was a lot like the Grateful Dead. The rest, as they say, is history. Take a good look.

Nice photos! Saw Asleep last year with my dad and it was a lot of fun, Texans came out of the woodwork in Livermore,CA.

Mr. Big Ray Benson . Ah , yes . Love Texas swing .

That is a picture of 3 bad ass men in '72 . From their own accounts it's amazing they are all still with us .

Willie & the Wheel is a must buy for you folks who like this music . It's like a party in Austin .
